Sumptuous Dinner at Newman’s in Saluda, NC

Newman's Restaurant at the Orchard Inn, Saluda, NC
We were delighted with our dinner at Newman’s Restaurant in the gracious Orchard Inn, outside the quaint town of Saluda, NC. This was our second visit in the last few weeks…

We enjoyed hors d’oeuvres with a glass of wine by the warm and cozy fireplace…

The atmosphere and service at Newman’s are spectacular. But the highlight of our visits were the meals. The innkeepers are also chefs and they have extensive backgrounds in preparing gourmet meals for guests. (Read their story here.) As a result, their guests come back to Newman’s (and the Orchard Inn) repeatedly to enjoy some of the best food in all of Western North Carolina. Both of our meals started with butternut squash soup with roasted pumpkin seeds and Austrian pumpkin seed oil, and a fresh salad of organic greens, cherry tomatoes, hearts of palm, roasted sunflower seeds, and home made house dressing. Excellent…

We tasted each others entrées, and we couldn’t decide who had the best one. They were both spectacular. For dessert, one of us had forest berry pie with vanilla ice cream, and the other had chocolate decadence pie (with Grand Marnier). They were both indescribably delicious…

A couple of weeks ago at Newman’s we celebrated our anniversary (for the second time) with another couple. The chef got wind of it and ta-DA… our apple cobbler dessert arrived as a sweet greeting card!

Now we have to go back for brunch. It’s served to both guests and anyone who makes a reservation. I understand it’s the one of the best in Western North Carolina. (Can’t wait!)
